Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 26, 2017 The tweet linked to a video on Instagram taken at the president’s recent rally in Youngstown, Ohio, where he relayed the same message to supporters.Except … the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees every American the right to practice whatever religion they choose to practice and worship whichever God they choose — and that includes no religion or no God at all.The separation of church and state, our Founding Fathers decided, is as American as apple pie.The irony of Trump’s tweet wasn’t lost on Hend Amry, who also spotted a loophole in his statement.Trump never specified which God. So Amry, a popular Muslim Arab American voice on Twitter, tweeted in response to the president:The sentiment behind the phrase “Allahu Akbar” — roughly translated to “Allah [or God] is the greatest” in English — seemed to be a hit with other users, as the tweet quickly amassed over 20,000 Likes.”THIS TWEET KNOWS NO IMPERFECTIONS,” one user chimed in.”ALLAHU AKBAR! I’m a Unitarian Universalist and atheist,” another wrote, “but solidarity is important in these troubled times.”Amry’s response, while tongue-in-cheek, perfectly nailed a vital contradiction in Trump’s policy-making and worldview. On one hand, Trump is a boisterous proponent of religion — so long as it’s a specific kind of religion.If you’re Muslim, you or a family member may fall victim to Trump’s bigoted, ill-informed immigration policies. If you’re Jewish, you may not have too many allies in his White House — an administration that’s “tacitly [embraced] anti-Semitism,” according to some advocates.Upon taking office, Trump swore to uphold the Constitution — and that includes respecting and protecting the First Amendment. Judging by his latest tweet, he’s done a very poor job in doing so. SAD
Even the most fun places on Earth can be dicey for parents of young children.Take the carnival, for example. Yes, it’s full of rides and music and lights and delicious snacks, but it’s also a minefield of tantrum traps. One misstep here could cause your toddler to erupt.That’s nearly what happened to mom Brea Schmidt and her daughter when they hit up a fair in their hometown of Cleveland.When Schmidt got home, she shared the doozy of a story on Facebook.Schmidt’s 5-year-old daughter was hooked on a carnival game, trying to win a bright pink “Poppy” doll.Mom gave her dollar after dollar to try to win the toy, but alas, luck was not on their side that night.Schmidt decided to call it, figuring this would be a good time to teach her daughter how to lose gracefully and how no matter how hard we try, we can’t always get what we want.Then, a stranger stepped in with a kind offer. (It’s not quite what you think).Schmidt explains in her now-viral post:”Then I heard the voice of a fellow mom who saw my daughter’s tears and had been watching her open all of those tickets with excitement.She says, ‘You know what, honey, I have a dollar and I’m going to give it another try for you.’My girl speed-lifted her head off my shoulder and started twirling her hands the way she does when she’s excited.The woman grabbed a dollar from her personal wallet, snags the three-for-$1 ticket from the bucket of tickets… and no joke opened a winning ticket.The look on my daughter’s face was the absolute best. Nothing but pure, 5-year-old thrill shining through the leftover tears and snot on her face.”The girl was overjoyed, and Schmidt’s picture showed her sleeping with the doll that night, in a state of pure bliss. Last night my girl was playing a game at the church festival in my hometown… trying desperately to win a Poppy doll by…Posted by The Thinking Branch on Friday, July 21, 2017 “So maybeeeeee we missed the ‘you don’t always get what you want lesson’ last night,” Schmidt wrote. “We’

An estimated 15,000 trans people currently serve in the military. In June 2016, the U.S. secretary of defense made a long-overdue announcement: The military was ending its ban on transgender service members.With the 2011 end to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy banning gay, lesbian, and bisexual people from serving, allowing trans people to serve openly seemed like the logical next step.As then-Secretary of Defense Ash Carter explained, “Our mission is to defend this country, and we don’t want barriers unrelated to a person’s qualifications to serve preventing us from recruiting or retaining the soldier, sailor, airman, or Marine who can best accomplish the mission.”Fast-forward a year, and President Trump has undone that progress, tweeting that “the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military.”He cited “tremendous medical costs” as the reason behind his decision despite the fact that a RAND Corporation study found that the total additional cost of allowing trans people to serve in the military is $2.4 million-8.4 million. (For comparison, in 2014, the military spent more than 10 times that on erectile dysfunction medication alone.)

“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut.” Photo by Kevin Dietsch – Pool/Getty Images. History will remember Michelle Obama as a bold, resilient, and glass-ceiling-shattering pioneer in the White House. But behind closed doors, Obama silently wrestled with painful, unique hurdles literally no one else on Earth has experienced: being a black first lady of America.During a candid discussion at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s (WFCO) 30th anniversary fundraiser on July 25, Obama opened up about the eight years of racist attacks she endured as first lady.When WFCO President and CEO Lauren Casteel asked Obama about which falling glass shard from the ceiling she shattered hurt the most, the former first lady replied that it was the targeted comments — rhetoric referring to her as an “ape” and discussing her body — that were the toughest to shrug off, the Denver Post reported.“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said. “Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.” Photo by Jason Bahr/Getty Images for The Women’s Foundation of Colorado. While Obama earned relatively high approval ratings among Americans as a whole, she still had to tread through a seemingly unending onslaught of racist dog whistles and overtly bigoted attacks in her eight years as first lady.There was that eyebrow-raising New Yorker cover depicting her with an Afro and machine gun, the racist (transphobic, misogynistic) comparison to Melania Trump, and the time shortly after taking office that a top Google Images search result for “Michelle Obama” was an image altered so she resembled a monkey.But the bigotry, however daunting, never kept her from fighting onward.“I want to live in a world that cares for its women,” Obama said at the fundraiser. “I hope that we can create a world where women are safe. At the core, I want girl
